Musician and painter Joseph Arthur will release his new album The Family on June 3 via True North Records. He's got various pre-order options, including one of his paintings which was specifically made to accompany the album's single "You Keep Hanging On." It's a nice dose of mid-tempo piano pop, and its video premieres in this post.

The whole album was written on Joseph's Steinway Vertegrand piano, and he produced, recorded and performed the whole thing himself, including the drums, guitars, synths and more. Check out the tracklist, album art, and the "You Keep Hanging On" painting, below.

Joseph also begins an international tour in Paris this Saturday (4/16) and comes to NYC soon after for a show on April 22 at the Rubin Museum of Art. The show goes from 7-8:30 PM, and it's part of the venue's Naked Soul series, which "presents performances from some of the country’s top singer/songwriters without microphones or amplifiers, as if the music were, acoustically speaking, naked." Tickets are on sale now (and they're a bit cheaper if you're a museum member). All dates are listed below.
